The distance between the two sites is not that large to preclude walking. Only a few minutes.

People not wishing to walk can use either Chicago Transit, or share cabs.

Regarding transit both hotel and museum have nearby stops for Brown and Purple lines. Which of the lines is better depends on the direction to go:

LocationTransit Stop
Hotel Merchandise Mart Brown Line To Museum
Museum Washington/Wells Purple Line To Hotel


The map makes also clear that it is easy to get to and from Chicago O'Hare Airport.

Airport Blue Line Clark/Lake Brown Line Merchandise Mart @ Hotel
Merchandise Mart @ HotelPurple Line Clark/Lake Blue Line Airport

Other Maps:

both show the relevant transit stops also, although not marked. They are the nearest stops to each location.
